Easy Weeknight Mushroom and Kale Pasta from 100 Days of #RealFood #pasta

This is one of those dishes where my 6-year-old will yell from upstairs, “Mommy, what are you making?!? It smells sooooo good down there!” That girl loves to eat good food, and I love to make it, which makes us a perfect match. This recipe is also the only time I’ve ever seen my 8-year-old actually eat mushrooms and somewhat enjoy them.

See, even though I know she “doesn’t like” mushrooms, I make them anyway and just try to serve them different ways in different dishes. And once in a blue moon, all that hard work pays off when they eat (and enjoy) something new – score!

  1. Hello! Making this tonight using fresh mushrooms. I’m guessing I’d skip step 1 and just cook the fresh mushrooms with the onions in Step 2? Thanks! :)

  2. This is incredible! Best easy creamy pasta recipe ever. I couldn’t find dried, so I used fresh mushrooms and Mushroom stock! I recommend adding some shredded deli ham or pre cooked salmon on top.

      Hi. You can. Another reader above added vegetable stock since you wouldn’t be adding the reserved mushroom stock.

    Made this last night and I was a little worry because it looked like it wasn’t turning out right. It turned out great! So Good! Ran out of kale this week but still had some spinach and used that instead. I’m currently participating in pledge and want to say thank you for all these awesome meal recipes!

  4. This is absolutely delicious…..my husband, who is a meat lover, could not stop eating it!!! I used fresh mushrooms so used vegetable stock.
